In this 155th in a series of live discussions with Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying (both PhDs in Biology), we discuss the state of the world through an evolutionary lens.
This week, we discuss USDA organic certification, Whole Foods, and why people make inconsistent decisions in their own lives. We talk about new research published in Science Immunology that finds that the degree to which people are mRNA vaccinated against Covid is correlated with a paradoxical immunological response (with regard to IgG4). We discuss new research published in The Lancet, which pretends to be about how women are faring with monkeypox, but is actually largely about men who are pretending to be women; we also review The Lancet’s final op-ed of 2022, which bemoans a “breakdown of trust in the state and in scientists.” Finally, we discuss how glass frogs become transparent: by sequestering blood in their livers.
